OK, OK, I don’t speak Danish; I used an online translator¹. This was inspired by the Hairy Beast’s (intentionally) badly translated title:
Isn’t it odd that whenever you get a bunch of Greenpeace types together in a group, violence ensues? But nobody ever makes the connection. If violence on this scale had occurred at a Conservative rally, don’t you think the left would be making political hay out of it? “Now we see the violence inherent in the movement! Census Takers will dangle from every tree. Rush will be proclaimed Chancellor of the Republic and Glen Beck will roam the streets with his mob bashing in the windows at every Health Food store.”
But when the streets swarm green and the gutters run red it doesn’t reflect badly on the movement at all. Strange how that works…
Perhaps our friends on the left mock the “tea party” protests precisely because they aren’t violent. Maybe they don’t think that protesters can be serious if they aren’t tearing up something.
¹ – Greenpeace rioting in the streets of Copenhagen is very stupid.
